Marvin Parker Memorial Garden III

The garden is growing well. The tender new sprouts have flourished with the abundant rain and the return of warm, sunny afternoons. Fastsigns made a great banner for the garden, publicly marking it as the Marvin Parker Memorial Community Garden.

As you can see, several plots have new vegetables sprouting. Mostly the early plantings such as beets, cabbage and such.

Over at my little plot, the onions are sprouting:

Not the 150 or so I planted, some seem to have returned to the earth from whence they came. I should have a few of them come time to harvest. I bought some peppers and a couple of tomatoes, a nice big Heirloom red and 4 Romas. Romas are wonderful little tomatoes and quite expensive at the stores.
